There are very few of us who haven’t been lost at some point in our lives, usually because we took a back road. Maybe we attempted an unknown road by car, or by foot, and suddenly realised that we had lost our way. At that moment, our greatest need is for a road map or a friendly helper to guide us back to the right road. If we refuse to accept advice in such a circumstance, we would probably run the risk of worsening our situation. 😦
It is the same in life. You set out on a project or an action that swiftly turns out to be mistaken, or you have to make a choice and it becomes apparent that you have chosen the wrong option. Or, maybe you have to make a decision, but you simply can’t … because your perspective is obscured and forces beyond your control make it difficult for you…….
Throughout the journey of life, we must lay every decision we have to make before God! Then, wait in the quiet of His presence for Him to give you guidance, so that you can be sure that you are setting forth in faith, and know that you are not alone because Jesus, the Living Christ will be there to guide you on the right path. (Yee haaaaaaa) It would be the height of folly to ignore this fact on your journey into the new year!
Lord Jesus, help me not to follow my own heart without consulting you first, but to wait quietly for YOUR guidance so that I will walk the right path!
